The following letter from a Sf. Louis pa - j
per, is sensible am! to the point. 1 he w riter,
it appears, had been nominated on the
Working Men's'* Ticket, as a candidate to
iepresent one ol the wards ol the city. After
a brief introduction he says:

Whie, ami as the Whigs have a regularly
nominated ticket t’or said Ward, l am oppos
ed to creating;! division in their ticket; and
I ertherwmre, as l am opposed to ei eating
distinction in the community—as the interest
of the Mechanic and the Workingman and
the Scholar, are one and the same; as I know
ot no distinctions «h>i ween man and nun, ex
cept that caused by merit and dement; and
presuming that you are aware, that 1 am a
worker in metals, as Tubal Cain ami oilier*
wt-ie, and also that l am not yet possessed ol
brass enough to aspire to any ollice, l take
this opportunity to y, that 1 desire only to
be a candidate for the favors of my fellow-cit

and that l occasionally man utac Lure ‘‘.Ylutcli

Those of all classes, fellow-citizens, who
may feel kke bestowing their sullrages upon
me during the political year in tnv tine, will
. liud me ever willing to serve them at the old
stn nd, 50 Main street, nearly opposite the A lie -
ii*»n llou>es. Therefore, 1 beg you to
state uv»st respectfully, to the 'W orbing Men,
that l decline accepting the honor they have

Ice Business at tub West.—We learn
from the Cincinnati Republican that the ice
business is carried on extensively in other
place* besides the sea coast of New f.ngland.
Something is (tone in this way on the Ohio
river. At I (ogan'sCreek, 5 miles below l.:nv
| reneebure, la., and at Tanner's and Langne
ry's Creek, 25 miles heiow Cincinnati, large
[quantities o! ice are packed in flat Boats, ami
[shipped below t'»r different towns on the coast
[above New Orleans. The plan is to anchor
I flat Boats, about 100 feet long, 20 wide, and
| 5deep, m ’lie*e creeks, and let them freeze in.
As soon as the ice is of sullicient thickness,
! tlie boils are loaded with it, ami it is so well
[arranged and packed in straw, that no percep
tible ioss occurs by melting, and the very
straw its*‘il sells at a profit. One man cleared
NI200 last year by iiie>e shipments. The use
of ice is becoming general at all the the nver
towns, sinceit is sold at a moderate price.
in Cincinnati, there are twenty-four large
ice-houses, capable of containing -IGO.OoO bu
shels of ice—and some ten or fifteen smaller
ice-houses, which contain about 10,000 bushels
m tlie aggregate—and yet we are told that the
supply of ice in the city lias never exceeded
the demand far home consumption, and for
steamboats, so that none is shipped. The ci
tizens of Cincinnati seem determined to Keep
cool so far ns it may depend on ice.

APPALLING SURGICAL OPERATION. |
Having witnessed an opeiation performed j
in Uos city «>:i Friday las!, by l)r Warner,(the j
Professor of Surgery in the Medical College,) j
winch, lor its novelty and severity, rivals the .
boldest efforts of the art, l feel it a duty to the ;
operator and the community to give you a de- |
laded account ol it. The subject was a negro j
23 years ol age, aliiicted with osteo-surcomn,
extending from the chin to tlie articiatiou <»! '
tlie lower j,i\v wiih the left temporal h'rtne.— j
Tlie negro had heenseut from Norh Carolina
to receive whatever benefit me resources oi ■
surgery promised her; and after consultation,
Dr.'Warner determined to remove half of tlie !
lower jaw, wi ll the diseased mass attached j
•thereto, i he patient was placed in the sit- i
ling posture, aim secnred by strong bands to
the chair—tlie head being sui'ported by an as- >
sLtant. The operation commenced by re
moving t!»e two left-inns or teeth. Aiiincis-j
ion was then made from the left nrgieoftbe
mouth to a point a! out hail an inch in Iront ol
the left ear, sons to command tin* lell articu
lation • *! the jaw. A second incision was car- .
tried perpendicuharly lrom the termination ol
ibis an inch below the angle o! the jaw a ,
tlii.d ii:ci uon along the centre of the lower
lip. extending downwards upon the neck an !
inch below the jaw. All the parts enclosed III '
